So i create a multiplayer game, give my friend my ip address, she joins just fine but i'm stuck sitting at the screen where it says waiting on clien. It then says client has joined game but i'm still stuck at the screen. Am I doing something wrong?

Of course this depends on whether your using a router or not etc etc.
